56:1  When the inevitable event comes to pass,
56:2  Then its occurrence can not be denied.
56:3  It will put some down and elevate others.
56:4  When the earth is shaken with violent shock,
56:5  The Mountains will crumble to ground,
56:6  Becoming dust particles floating around.
56:7  You will be divided into three categories.
56:8  Those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand?
56:9  Those on the left hand; what of those on the left hand?
56:10  The foremost ones (who were monotheists) are the foremost ones (in receiving their reward).
56:11  Those are the ones who will be brought nigh (to Allâh),
56:12  (56: 12) Abiding in the gardens of bliss.
56:13  A multitude of those foremost will be from the ancient people
56:14  And a few will be from the later generations.
56:15  (They will sit) on bejeweled thrones,
56:16  Reclining thereon, facing one another.
56:17  Round about them will go immortal youths,
56:18  Carrying goblets, pitchers and a cup of pure drink.
56:19  Where from they will neither get headache, nor will they get intoxicated-
56:20  Carrying also fruits that they choose
56:21  And flesh of fowls that they desire.
56:22  They will have immortal maidens, wide, lovely black eyes
56:23  Like hidden pearls;
56:24  A reward for what they used to do.
56:25  They will not hear therein any evil vain talk or sinful speeches
56:26  But only the word of greeting, “Peace, Peace.”
56:27  Those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand?
56:28  (They will be) amid thornless lot trees,
56:29  And banana palms,
56:30  In an extended shade,
56:31  By water flowing constantly,
56:32  Many types of fruits,
56:33  Neither intercepted, nor forbidden,
56:34  And on exalted thrones.
56:35  Verily, We created those maidens of special creation
56:36  And then We made them virgins,
56:37  Loving, equals in age,
56:38  For those on the right hand.
56:39  A multitude of those on the right hand will be from the ancient people,
56:40  And another multitude will be from the later generations.
56:41  Those on the left hand; what of those on the left hand?
56:42  (They will be) in scorching wind and scalding hot water,
56:43  And under a shadow of black smoke,
56:44  Neither cool nor refreshing.
56:45  Verily, they were, before that, indulging in affluence,
56:46  And they used to persist in the great blasphemy.
56:47  They used to say: "When we die and turn to dust and bones, shall we be resurrected?
56:48  Or our fathers of yore?”
56:49  Say: "(Yes) indeed, all the ancients and the later generations
56:50  Will be gathered together for the appointed hour of predetermined day.
56:51  Then O’ you who had gone astray, and refused to acknowledge the Truth!
56:52  You verily will eat from the fruit of ‘Zaqqum Tree’,
56:53  Filling your bellies with it.
56:54  On top of this, you will drink boiling water,
56:55  Drinking like a thirsty camel"
56:56  This is their provision on the ‘Day of Judgment’.
56:57  It is We Who have created you. Will you then consent to receive this fact?
56:58  Have you seen that which you ejaculate?
56:59  Is it you who create it, or are We the Creators?
56:60  We have destined death for you; and We are not to be overcome,
56:61  In order that We may transfigure you, and may make you grow into what you know not.
56:62  Verily, you have already known about the first creation, then why do you not celebrate His praises and declare His infinite glory?
56:63  Have you seen the seed that you sow in the ground?
56:64  Are you the ones who cause it to grow, or We who cause it to grow?
56:65  If we willed, we could turn it into debris, then you would be left wondering,
56:66  (Saying): ” Definitely we are burdened with debt,
56:67  Nay, but we are deprived!"
56:68  Have you seen the water which you drink?
56:69  Are you the ones who cause it to come down from the rain clouds? Or We who cause to come down?
56:70  If we willed, we could make it very salty. Then why do you not show any gratitude (to your Lord for His endless blessings).
56:71  Have you seen the fire which you kindle?
56:72  Are you the ones who initiated its tree, or We who initiated it?
56:73  We have made it a reminder, and a useful item for the inhabitants of the wilderness.
56:74  Thus, glorify with praises the Name of your Lord, the Most Great.
56:75  Nay, I swear by the positions of the stars.
56:76  Verily, this is definitely a great oath, if you but know-
56:77  This is, indeed, an honorable ‘Qur’ān’
56:78  In a well-preserved Book.
56:79  No one shall touch it except the purified ones.
56:80  It is a revelation from the Lord of all the worlds.
56:81  Is it such a discourse, (this’ Qur’ān’), that you refuse to acknowledge the truth of It.
56:82  And you make your disbelief thereof your means of livelihood?
56:83  Then why (can't you help a soul) when it comes up to the throat?
56:84  You at the moment are looking on
56:85  While We are closer to it than you are, but you see not.
56:86  Since you are not held under authority,
56:87  Why do you not bring it back (to its body), if you are truthful?
56:88  Then if he is one of those who are drawn nigh (to Allâh),
56:89  (His soul) will be a breath of life with the scent of basil in the gardens of bliss.
56:90  But if he is one of those on the right hand,
56:91  His soul will be (greeted by the word) “Peace” from those on the right hand.
56:92  But if he is one of those who refused to accept the Truth, and went astray (from the right path),
56:93  Then his accommodation will be scalding hot water
56:94  And the heat of the burning Fire.
56:95  Verily, this is the Ultimate Truth.
56:96  Thus, glorify with praises the Name of your Lord, the Most Great.
